Voices for Equality and Respect: LGBTIQ+ family violence project

Join Women’s Health East at a summit to launch the Voices for Equality and Respect project research report.

The Voices for Equality and Respect project aims to expand our understanding of family violence beyond leading heteronormative frameworks and narratives. Evidence suggests intimate partner violence is as prevalent in LGBTIQ communities as it is in the general population. However there are significant gaps in our understanding of what drives family violence in the LGBTIQ context has major implications for prevention efforts.

Women’s Health East’s Voices for Equality and Respect project addresses this by elevating the voices of young queer people and exploring their distinct understanding of equal and respectful relationships.

Guest speakers include AFLW star Darcy Vescio and leader researcher for the Voices for Equality and Respect project, Dr Philomena Horsley.

When: 12th December 2019
Where: Box Hill Pavilion, 1155 Whitehorse Rd, Box Hill
